Developer Bio

Rubber Arm Muscle Rub was developed by a former professional baseball player who has been working in the Biopharmaceutical Industry for the past 15 years. enny Wentz played high school football and baseball at Halifax County Senior High School where he was the starting quarterback and infielder/pitcher for the Blue Comets. After high school, Lenny was offered a baseball scholarship to Virginia Tech where he played from 1986 to 1990. In 1990, Lenny signed with the Cincinnati Reds and played in their organization until he was traded to the San Diego Padres in 1993. Shortly after that trade, Lenny suffered a career ending shoulder injury. He then became a high school teacher and head baseball coach at Amherst County High School. After teaching and coaching for 4 years, Lenny was offered a biopharmaceutical sales position. Lenny suffered a snow skiing accident in 1998 which tore the labrum muscle in his right hip. For years, Lenny
dealt with severe pain which limited his physical activity. Before the injury he was an avid runner, weight
lifter, and golfer. He could no longer enjoy these activities because of the pain they caused. In 2010, Lenny remembered an old family remedy his grandmother (who was a registered nurse) had introduced to him. In high school, he would rub the home remedy on after football and baseball games to help relieve his sore muscles. He thought that it might help with the current pain he was experiencing so he made a batch. The old home remedy worked! Because of his background in molecular and biochemistry, Lenny started looking at the ingredients and realized that with a few adjustments this muscle rub could be approved by the FDA and it could eventually help millions of people like him who suffer from muscle soreness and pain. That is how Rubber Arm Muscle Rub and Rubber Arm, Inc. began.

A skin moisturizer that creates a protective surface layer while helping to improve elasticity and tone.

Born in Hartford, CT but basically grew up in Attleboro, 

MA and graduated from Attleboro High School in 1997. 
I attended Stonehill College in Easton, 
MA and graduated with my degree in Marketing and a 
Computer Information Systems Minor in 2001.
During college I worked several jobs simultaneously which included
driving limousines for wedding events, GNC Sales Associate and ran my own landscaping
business. In addition, I began doing some TFP modeling work which led to being
“discovered” by a talent scout while out on the town in Boston one night. Soon after I began 
doing contract work for Candy Ford in Boston/NYC and included print, runway, fitness and
spokesperson work.

My love for bodybuilding and getting “big” put an end to my runway days but by that point I
was out of college and looking to start a career with my degree. Fast forward just over 10 
years and I started competing in 2011 in the NPC in the newly formed MPD. AS they say 
“the rest is history” and now I am pursuing my IFBB Pro Card in Physique and hope to 
eventually start my own personal training, contest diet/prep business to help other achieve 
their fitness goals.

Calculating lbs. of body fat from the calculated percentage.
